Weekends are meant for relaxation, and nothing begins a great leisurely weekend quite like a delicious brunch. Renoites love their late breakfasts and many restaurants around the city specialize in breakfast or offer weekend brunch. From classic eggs benedict to brunch-inspired pizza, here is a look at some of the morning and late-morning deliciousness found in Reno, Nevada.
Noble Pie Parlor
Tucked inside the historic El Cortez Hotel, an Art Deco gem located in downtown, Noble Pie Parlor is a delicious restaurant whose specialty is New York-style artisan oven-fired pizza. Open every day for lunch and dinner, the pizza place also offers the brunch crowd a flavorful selection of plates on the weekends. Procuring the best quality ingredients, including local, organic items, the culinary team creates several enticing options, such as the brunch slice, a piece of pizza topped with all manner of deliciousness. An array of brunch cocktails, including bellinis, mimosas, plus a build-your-own bloody Mary bar, is also available at this lively art-adorned spot.
Old Granite Street Eatery
Peg’s Glorified Eggs n Ham
A family-owned and operated small chain eatery with four locations in the Reno area plus one in California, Peg’s Glorified Eggs n Ham is a popular breakfast and lunch spot serving hearty portions to hungry diners. Established in 1999, this casual establishment attracts locals and tourists alike seven days a week. Offering a varied menu ensures that everyone from omnivores to vegetarians to those with a sweet craving will find something to tickle their taste buds. Favored choices include the huevos rancheros served with hash browns, pico de gallo, cabbage slaw, fresh pinto beans and tortillas and the veggie benedict with avocado, tomato, onion and spinach plus hollandaise.
Established in 1974 in Truckee, CA, Squeeze In is a family-friendly, laid-back joint known for their massive omelettes. Purchased by the Young family in 2003, the restaurant expanded to Reno and due to its popularity, continues to grow. A celebrated favorite with the weekend brunch crowd (there is often a wait on the weekends) breakfast starts at 7 am and is served until closing (2 pm) making it the perfect spot for early or late risers. Favorite dishes among guests include the ‘Nebraska Rae’ omelette stuffed with bacon, tomatoes and cream cheese and topped with avocado and the banana and walnut pancakes. For a tasty brunch cocktail, try the top-shelf bloody Mary garnished with a piece of bacon.
The Stone House Cafe
Tucked inside an early-1900s Craftsman-style bungalow built out of river rock, The Stone House Cafe specializes in delicious New American cuisine. Owned by the Abowd family, the lovely café serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily and is a must-try for any brunch lover. Within a vibrant interior with retro rock posters adorning the walls, or weather permitting, outside on the patio beautified with trees, flowers, and plants, diners can feast upon a host of tantalizing entrées of sweet or savory varieties. The Irish oatmeal pancakes topped with lingonberry maple syrup and the lobster benedict, are two wonderful choices. Pair the meal with a cocktail for the ultimate brunch experience.
